This week the city and ADI held an exciting three day design workshop (or charrette) to explore ideas for enhancing our wonderful City. The purpose of the design workshop was to help build consensus around priority action items and projects within the downtown study area as well as the City’s off street trail network.

The workshop addressed land use, transportation, place-making, and specific redevelopment/new development opportunities within the study area. See the events pages for more details on specific opportunities to have your voice heard!

The Downtown Plan Review Open House format allowed our community members  to come together and review display boards and leave comments on proposed concepts generated over the three day design workshop.

These concepts were drafted during the public workshops earlier in the week. There was also a 20-30 minute formal presentation at 5:30pm and at 6:30pm
